Although this one is not striped, it is one of the siblings from the Bario seed batch I received 3 years ago.



With its compact pitcher body, I wouldn't hesitate to breed this with one of its striped siblings, when the time comes.

Sounds like a good idea, dvg. That's a beautiful pitcher!
Cheers,

I noticed recently that one of these N. veitchii Bario plants was beginning to flower.



When I removed the above plant to take a photo of the flower, I noticed another plant in the tray was also sporting a flower spike.



Having two of these plants revealing sex was unexpected, but then the third plant in the tray turned out to be also showing a flower.



It might just be wishful thinking on my part, but if this turns out to be a female, i'll be making seeds much sooner than I thought. :)

Thanks Corky,

It does seem to be a bit of luck that these were all from the same tray and they are all flowering at once.

And if the last flower shown does indeed turn out to be female and it's looking like it could be, then this simultaneous flowering would be truly timely and fortunate.

I've always maintained that I've wanted to breed the Bario N. veitchii seedling strains out to make seed and hopefully with everything seemingly synchronizing together, my wish may very well become a reality sooner than expected. :)

Congratulations on synchronize flowering those three! Hope you got some other females about, because these three are all male

Thanks guys,


how old are your plants DVG? & congratulations! mine is still small

Hi Favian, this batch was sown on June 22, 2010, making them almost 3 and half years out from seed.



The third one looks like a male too unfortunately

Hi Kevnep, yes you and the others that clearly spotted the last flower as being male were correct - three males. :)

Are these plants being grown in sunlight or under supplemental lighting?

Hi Mato, these plants are grown under lights in my basement. In about five weeks times we'll be down to 7.5 hours of daylight outside, so the lights definitely help. :)

Looking awesome DVG, I would agree they are all male. Now you just need to find a few pretty ladies.

Thanks JH,

Typical males: out in front early, ready to go.

Meanwhile, the lovely ladies are not too sure that they're even in the mood yet...

...maybe another pitcher, some more vine, a slow dance for sure - but mostly more patience... :)

I'll update again, when I have some good news!

Wow, since the start of this thread you grew 3 of these from seedling stage to flowering maturity in under 2 years. Very nice. I'm with the others, you need to cross that squat veitchii with a very stripe-y veitchii!

Well since no females have yet surfaced, I thought I'd share a pic of one of these that has been camera shy up until now.

Still a small plant, but showing a bit of potential.

Looking forward to seeing how this one progresses.

That is one of the best N. vietchii I've ever seen. It's absolutely fantastic! :-O
